165: Match Recon- 3-Gun Nation Midwest Regional (2017)

Special Field Correspondent Adam Maxwell worked hard to get a 3-Gun Nation Regional in his home state of Minnesota and it came to fruition in the 2017 3GN Midwest Regional. Adam points out in this Match Recon that a 3GN match is now it’s own flavor of match and tells us why.

We also get a little behind the scenes on the logistics and coordination that it takes to get a 3GN match on your range plus the coolest parts of the 3GN RO class.

This Match Recon was recorded months before several of the key players at 3GN split off into the new venture of Strategic Match Design (SMD) so it is interesting to hear the dynamic presented in Minnesota.
